Headlamps hidden with retractable covers and full-width dropped center taillamps made a comeback from the late s.

It was originally available in only two colors- Diamond Jubilee exclusive "diamond blue" metallic, or "standard issue" ember metallic; both with matching velour cloth seats with a "biscuit" design.
